A advanced due to the thanksgiving Holiday next week the deadline for Church notices and new items must be advanced to wednesday noon. By Louis Cassels up religion writer a prayer for this season that time is Here again o Inird. The season we Call by act of Congress and solemn proclamation of the president we americans Are supposed to join together next thursday in thanking you for the blessings you have bestowed upon us As a nation. Actually lord As you Well know most of us will put the Holiday to More a a practical uses such As starting a four Day weekend trip or raking leaves or watching a football game or having the family in for a big Turkey dinner. We feel a Little constrained about this business of being publicly thankful for what we have together As americans. Some of us the younger ones especially Are not so sure what we be got is Worth bragging about a or being thankful for. Many More of us simply take it All for granted. A few of us Are embarrassed by the riches of a nation which having 6 per cent of the worlds people annually gobbles up nearly 50 per cent of its goods. We wonder whether we should thank you for this largesse or fall to our Knees in repentance for failing to be More generous in sharing our wealth with hunger bloated babies in Calcutta refugee Camps and african children whose bodies Are tortured by bilharzia. Of course lord there also Are among us people who think we deserve to be Richer and better fed and better housed than anyone else. We got Here by hard work and Good old american ingenuity they say so lets live it up and enjoy it and Don t kid ourselves about giving god and credit for it. And that suggests something that a majority of us might agree that we can and should be thank Ful for on this coming Day of National thanksgiving. We thank you gracious father for your infinite patience with us. We thank you for not having a yet administered the kind of comeuppance to us which you were always doling out to the people of ancient Israel who dared to Call themselves gods people just As we with perhaps greater temerity like to refer to America As a a nation under give us Grace merciful lord to apply honestly to our own nation and our own time the words of warning you spoke to the people of Israel 2,500 years ago through the Prophet Jeremiah a i brought you into a plentiful land to enjoy its fruits and its Good things. A but when you came in you defiled my land and made my heritage an abomination. A this people has a stubborn and rebellious heart they have turned aside and gone away. A they have become great and Rich a they have grown fat and sleek. A they know no Bounds in deeds of wickedness a they judge not with Justice the cause of the fatherless and they do not defend the rights of the needy. A shall i not punish them for these things says the lord a and shall i not avenge myself on a nation such As this a not the most cheerful thought to Ponder next thursday Between your Turkey dinner and the football game. But it just might be terribly relevant. Pearl s. Buck honoured for a the Story Bible Danby a Pearl s. Buck of Dan by and Kenneth n.
